Guided Wave UT Training Level 2

Course Description

Decibel offer highly specialized course for engineers and scientists on the guided wave ultrasonic testing method. Detailed theoretical discussions are supplemented with extensive hands-on laboratory experiences in generating guided ultrasonic waves in different material geometries for defect identification and characterization. Please contact us for customized scheduling of your classes. Courses are offered in-house as well as at client sites. The classes are taught by highly qualified and experienced scientists and engineers.

We can provide Guided Wave UT courses and examinations suitable for the following certification scheme.

  • SNT-TC-1A in accordance with your/our company written practice

An example of the syllabus that is used for LRUT/Guided wave UT training courses is shown below for Level 2. Decibel can tailor make the syllabus to satisfy the requirements of an individual’s company specific written practice if requested.
